Fencing

There are two main things that you need to consider when choosing the type of fence to erect around your property. These include the purpose of the fence and how you would like it to appear. Some people look for privacy fences and these are primarily designed to keep your space to yourself. Such a fence can protect your compound against intrusion, block out the neighbourhood, or enclose a pool. The average height of a privacy fence is approximately six feet and the average width if the board is 4 inches. The average spacing in a privacy fence is normally 1/8 of an inch. It is important to consult with the local building codes for the existing limits when it comes to the installation of privacy fencing. Some state jurisdictions regulate the location and height of privacy fence. In case you want to set up a privacy fence, you can choose to go for vinyl, wood, bamboo, composites, pet control, or chain link fences. The kind of fencing materials that you choose will depend upon your budget and personal preferences.

 

Vinyl Fencing

The colour option for vinyl are limited to beige and white. More are more people in the region are going for this type of fence. It is advisable not to skimp around with the pricing of vinyl fencing because cheap options seem to look like plastic. The vinyl fence can give you value for your money as long as you choose to make the right decision.

 

Wood Fencing

The market has dozens of wood varieties that you can use for the purposes of fencing. You can apply wood fencing on both residential and commercial properties. However, you need to understand that different types of wood have varying life expectancies. Wood is not durable but you can extent its life span by seven to ten years by treating it with preservative chemicals. However, some wood species are hardy and hence don’t require any form or chemical preservation. Some good examples of hardy woods include Osage, cedar, and Black locust. However, it is advisable to seal and waterproof the wood immediately you are done with the installation process.

 

Bamboo Fencing

Bamboo is among the toughest natural fencing materials. The material is becoming more popular among most homeowners. It does not require any maintenance or fencing and can withstand the harshest climatic conditions.

 

Composites Fencing

This fencing design combines the durability of the synthetic plastics and the beauty of wood. There is no need to seal or paint this fencing material and it comes in a broad range of pre-set colours. Therefore, you will not fail to get something that blends well with the design of your home.

 

Pet Control Fencing

This fencing will help you to keep your lovely pets within the property. It will protect your pets from the danger that awaits them whenever they step out of your property.

 

Invisible Fencing

Invisible fencing can be very good if you want to contain your dog within the property or away from the landscaping. It’s similar to the radio in your car or home, because the wire will transmit signals to a receiver on the caller of your dog. All you need to do is train the dog to respect the new boundaries if you want this kind of fencing to succeed. 

 

Chain Link Fencing

This fence is a great option for anyone who would like the yard to remain visible to passers-by but block the neighbour’s pet’s from getting into his or her property.  Most fencing experts treat modern metallic materials with special coatings to enhance their durability by preventing oxidation. However, you will need some level of maintenance to keep the fence looking good for longer periods.

You can also go for decorative fencing if you want to impress your neighbours. The stone will give your fence a country looks and you can cover wood walls in artificial stone. The other kind of fences are cottage fencing and the slat fence. PBN professionals can help you to get the one that meets your needs with the desired level of precision.
